In today's episode, we sit down with 2017 PCT thru-hiker, Dirt Squirrel.  Dirt Squirrel will destroy any notions you have about the Millennial generation.  She is 23-years-old, well-spoken, doesn't like social media, journals in her notebook daily, and above all, loves hiking and the outdoors. 

In this episode, topics include:

- Mesa Arch in Arches National Park

- The Narrows in Zion National Park

- Hiking in a group vs. hiking solo

- Utilizing school grants for thru-hiking.

- Hiking as a vegan

- Hiking solo as a female

- The best restaurants on the PCT
